Why Pat Bullard chose Dauphin Island

This house gives you the feel of being at the beach, but the privacy of a yard. Located in an area of the island that is easily accessable to all activities.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is all on one level with entrance access under covered parking for easy loading and unloading. The house is pet friendly and family friendly. The large back yard is great for pets as well as families for games and grilling out. The dunes behind the house are its best feature . It is the best place to spend the evening watching the sunset over the gulf.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A charming well appointed house in a beautiful location. The house has a large fenced backyard with BBQ, fire pit, and seating. In the back, you can walk up a sand berm to a breathtaking view of the water. There are plenty of beach accessories provided: beach chairs, boogie boards, children's sand toys. The location is a brief walk to the beach or a 2 minute drive to the public beach, pool, golf, tennis, and restaurant.

I found the place by accident escaping hurricane Irma, but Pat (the owner) could not have been kinder or more accommodating. Our pets were at home and relaxed at the house. They also enjoyed the dog friendly beach. It was all a wonderful surprise.

I plan on coming back for a family reunion next year.

Great home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came the week of Spring Break with our daughter and her husband and their five children and two dogs. We had plenty of room. The house was comfortable and easy to access the beach . We had a little hiccup while we were there and the owner Pat worked hard to help us solve it. The water behind the house was kinda a hike to get there but perfect for the younger kiddos. Rode our bikes all over the island exploring. Overall had a great week

Thanksgiving on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The family gathered for Thanksgiving and had a great time. The beach walks were perfect. There were very few people, it was almost like having your own private beach. The house was comfortable and the back yard relaxing. This was our second time and as good as the first.

Owner's Response: This is the perfect time of year to enjoy beach walks. We are glad to have you return for your family gatherings at Thanksgiving. Hope to have you again next year.
